Minimize Overview
The modelling of radiation processes are essential to our understanding of the energy cycles between the land surface and the atmosphere. In addition to which they provide an important input to the planning of solar energy programmes.

The OceanoScientific® Programme

15 July 2010

Scientists around the world model the evolution of the climate in order to precisely determine the causes and consequences of this warming. But those models sometimes need more support, as there is a real lack of scientific data efficiently validated. Nevertheless, satellite observation is very useful as it allows Scientists to monitor all the oceans nearly continuously.
